A Stone, A Leaf, An Unfound Door
Aisling McCoy | Yvette Monahan | Andrew Rankin
Launch Party – Friday 20th May 6pm
Taken from website: Belfast Exposed Futures are excited to be taking part in Peckham 24 this may – a packed 24 hour programme of contemporary photography, video and installation art featuring exhibitions, parties, talks and tours taking place in the Peckham area during the 2016 Photo London festival.
The festival brings together a community of local Peckham artists and art spaces, as well as a number of invited guests from the UK and Europe. In keeping with the area’s growing reputation as one of London’s most exciting contemporary art destinations, the selected exhibitions showcase a diverse range of practices from some of today’s cutting- edge talent. Exhibiting artists include Ciaran Og Arnold, Jo Dennis, Tom Lovelace, Ryan Moule, Jamie Shovlin and 3 artists from the 2016/17 Belfast Exposed Futures programme (Aisling McCoy, Yvette Monahan & Andrew Rankin).
For Peckham 24 Belfast Exposed presents an exhibition by three Irish photographers whose work explores the mythologies surrounding particular sites or landscapes. Working across a range of photographic approaches and subjects, each artist takes as their starting point a specific geographical location. These locations are presented as a series of psychological spaces imbued with memory and emotion; residual elements left over from the inertia of past events. This exhibition makes an enquiry into the human desire to ascribe meaning to our environment, how we experience our surroundings and the role of landscape in the invention of myth.
There will be a private opening and tour at Copeland Gallery, Peckham on Tuesday 17 May at 18:30 with Ciara Hickey, Curator of Belfast Exposed and artist Tom Lovelace, who will talk about his solo exhibition, Gardening, also part of the Copeland Gallery Photo London programme.
